Great news for Sony mylo fans! Sony has announced that beginning in mid-November, owners of the personal communicator will be given one year of free access to the T-Mobile HotSpot network. HotSpot provides wireless web access at more than 8,000 public locations in the country and normally costs users $360 per year ($10 more than the mylo itself). A “free pass” will soon appear on the mylo website, allowing device owners to download it and connect to the network free of charge. The promotion begins when the mylo connects to T-Mobile’s network for the first time or on the last day of 2007, whichever comes first, and ends a year later.
I’ve been using my mylo quite happily for the past three weeks (the review is coming soon) and am impressed by how quickly Sony has begun to support it. Since its release last month, the device has already received a relatively meaty firmware update . . . and now this! I hope this is an indication of things to come.[Press release]
